This summer, in partnership with YMCA Camp Manitou, we are offering new programs for youth entering grades 2-12. Campers will learn new skills, play large group games, and have plenty of opportunities to go swimming or boating every day. There are a variety of program options, from the classic camp experience to specialty camps like sailing.  The choices also include backpacking and canoeing camps.  The activities being offered at YMCA Camp Manitou provide great opportunities for kids to enjoy the outdoors while learning to work together and foster new friendships. Campers make memories that will last a lifetime. Learn more about Camp Manitou here

At camp, kids grow more confident, comfortable expressing themselves, and stronger in their ability to make friends. The staff are passionate about their jobs and appreciate the value in all campers, showing them the joy of the outdoors and how to make life fun. 

Camp Manitou sits on 170 acres of forest along the shores of Long Lake in New Auburn, Wisconsin. The shore faces west, providing a beautiful sunset over the lake nearly every evening.

We are excited to announce that YMCA Camp Manitou is treating our members like their members and extending their member rates to Centre Members for camp this summer.  Registration starts on January 1. If you have questions regarding these programs or are wondering if Camp Manitou is the right fit for your child, please feel free to contact us.

Camp Pricing

We offer three different price options because we want each family to choose the rate that is most appropriate for them.  No special paperwork is required.  The price you pay does not change the experience your camper receives.
Tier A - This price most accurately reflects the full cost of camp, taking into account basic upkeep, depreciation, and facility/program improvements.
Tier B - This price is a rate for families who need to adjust down slightly from the true cost.
Tier C - This subsidized rate is only available to YMCA members.
